  3. Carnival Horizon
It was our first experience with sailing on the Carnival Cruise Line. We have sailed 27 times using five other cruise lines in the past. The ship, the Carnival Horizon, is very nice and the decor very eye appealing. The staff was a friendly group and willing helpful and accommodating. The food was ok but not exceptional in any way. It was rather repetitive actually except for the evening meals in the dining room. The dining room evening meals did offer a variety but was just ok in the preparation and taste. I probably would have given the ship a rating of five overall except the food lowered the score. “Schwartz” was the cruise director and rated in my top three all time directors. He was super! He stayed on top of things, was very energetic, seemed to enjoy his job, and actually was some of our best entertainment. It was a very relaxing, enjoyable cruise.

Nice new ship

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View
Cabin 6L 1290
Very spacious cabin. Lots of storage and a surprise with an extra “bathroom”.... it was actually an addition sink area and a tub separate from the regular bathroom. It was nice to have for extra shower and to hang wet swimsuits for us since there was just two of us... be great for a family.
